office, it is the national news media and the fiscal cliff, fiscal cliff and if you are an intelligent politician and you walked out to do a press conference what i say to you which is a fiscal clef is a fantasy. we accept whatever obama wants dhaka duty triet if you want to with the fiscal cliff requires, much like the land of oz with the person hiding behind the machines to raise taxes now and they violated the fiscal cliff. t want to stand up and provide america the fiscal clef, do you want to go on the national and explain that you are so reactionary and out of touch with life that you don't care that america is going to die late on their state? it's all right if that is the kind of person that you are. you will never be on television because after all, you are clearly weird.
